I thoroughly enjoy working with couples, both heterosexual and gay monogamous, polyamorous, open, swinging, alternative and kinky sexuality or lifestyle.
Certainly part of what is meaningful and enjoyable for me is due to the fact that there are two people in my office with me rather than one, therefore there is more going on. And, relationships are important to humans; we truly are social animals who thrive more in community and relationship. Therefore, being part of a couple's healing is humbling and rewarding as I know it is important and life-enhancing for both of the individuals and the family in which they move.
One significant reason I am a therapist is because I want to make a difference in people's lives. I consider myself an agent of change in our society one person at at time. I am an evolutionary revolutionary "fighting" as it were for a safer, more humane, more inclusive, more accepting and more emotionally alive world. We have so much to heal from and healing is necessary for us to be more present to any situation at hand.
Couples can support each other in the healing and in that support of each other can help their relationship become stronger, more trusted; more intimate, interdependent and individuated at the same time.
I have been thinking deeply and having rich experiences nearly all my life. I ponder about humanity, relationships and emotional healing. I am in awe of the universe that we are all a part of and the meaning we bring to our experience of it.
